CORTICOSTEROIDS

Corticosteroids injections are used for symptomatic relief for numerous intra-articular problems and have yielded short-term symptoms improvement, but also with local or systemic side effects. Therefore cortisone joint injections should neither be used in an acute injury (impairing initial natural inflammatory response and potentially delaying healing) nor immediately prior to competition in professional athletes. Therefore, these injections are only used with caution in the knee joint.
